[Flash Counter Reset][AT&T, Rogers, Telus, Bell] Reset your flash counter
First of all, big thanks to mastibeta
for testing and confirming that it works.
This is a dangerous method and could potentially brick your phone. The CWM update makes it a bit more foolproof, but if something fails, it is not my responsibility!
AT&T i717, Rogers i717R, Telus i717D & Bell i717M ONLY!
(according to jpeg42
, it also works with the ics leak)
This resets the flash counter (kernel/recovery/... flashed through Odin) back to stock.
How to use
Download the zip file. Its an update-zip for cwm.
Put it on your sdcard, boot into recovery and flash it.
- Samsung knows how many kernels/recoveries you've flashed through odin.
- The single counters are up to 255, so theoretically you can "reset" by flashing 256 of each (Samsung will still know you flashed something)
- Samsung knows what was the last thing you've flashed
- Flashing System is not counted.
